Welcome inside

Machaba Camp

Machaba Camp is an iconic 1950s style safari camp replete with luxury tented rooms containing luxury en-suite bedroom with modern bathroom, patio deck and relaxation area, and romantic outdoor showers. The tents are positioned alongside the picturesque Khwai River to optimise privacy and views of the animals coming to the river's edge to drink, and are linked by a pathway that meanders between large riverine trees.

Luxury double and family safari tents

Our luxury safari tents feature en suite bedrooms with a romantic king-sized bed that can be separated into two twin beds. The Family tents at Machaba camp have two separate sleeping areas, each with it’s own oversized bed, comfortably catering for four guests in total.

Modern en suite bathrooms

Every eco-luxury tent has an en suite bathroom with hot and cold running water, a double basin vanity, an indoor shower, flush toilets and locally sourced bath products.

Shower outdoors

In addition to an inside shower, each unit has an open-air shower with hot and cold running water. Completely private from the casual passerby only the African sun or stars can see you as you rinse off the day’s adventures.

Roughing it meets comfort

Feel close to nature with only a layer of canvas between you and the wilds, but enjoy the luxuries of electric lamps, fans, mini safes and running hot and cold water.

Our room design philosophy

A pleasing balance between style, comfort and environment

We design each room to maximise privacy and optimise views of the land and we take our decor inspiration from a traditional African safari in terms of the fabrics, texture and hues that we use. We pair this feeling of opulence with consideration for the environment, which is why we don’t have any permanent structural fixtures and rely on solar energy, forgoing energy-heavy appliances such as shavers, air-conditioning and hairdryers.

  • Electric lights, fans and charging stations

Testimonials

Staying in a luxury safari tent

Staying in a safari tent immerses you into the wilds without compromising on the comfort and safety of a luxury room. Your ears will tune into the light rustlings of leaves or the distant roar of the mighty king of the veld. The wind gently catches and snaps the canvas and the air is alive with scented bushveld air. Being this close to nature evokes feelings of oneness and belonging. Africa is the birthplace of humankind, and a visit to Machaba Safaris feels like coming home.
